Twitter users may clam up a little after hearing about a decision by an L.A. Superior Court allowing outspoken conservative Hollywood celebrity James Woods to proceed with a defamation lawsuit against a man who tweeted Woods was a “cocaine addict.”

Anonymous twitter user "Abe List," whose social media profiles say he is a Harvard-educated partner at an L.A.-based private equity firm tweeted in response to Woods’ conservative tweets,  “Cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting."

You know the saying: “Too much of a bad thing …” CBS abruptly cancelled its run of TV series ‘Angel From Hell’ only five episodes into its first season. Less than halfway through the 13-episode series, CBS pulled the show rather mysteriously from its weekly time slot.

It may be just as well for the crass parody of the religious belief in guardian angels, which enjoyed modest ratings among adults 18-49.

Once again, Rolling Stone has come under fire for its lack of journalistic ethics over actor Sean Penn’s recent interview with Joaquin Guzman – better known as “El Chapo” – and giving the drug cartel kingpin editorial approval of the article. The beginning of Penn’s article came with a disclosure - confessing that names had been changed, locations were unnamed, and that the world’s most famous prison escapee of 2015 reviewed and approve the article prior to publication. Yes, the same magazine that painted an innocent University of Virginia fraternity as a den of gang rapists had no problem publishing a sympathetic piece for real devil.

On Sunday, ABC’s Good Morning America served as the latest example of shameless corporate synergy by touting in its lead 2016 report how actor Tony Goldwyn from the network’s lead drama Scandal spent Saturday giving Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “a big boost” by campaigning for her Iowa.

During Wednesday's edition of ABC's The View program, co-host Whoopi Goldberg happily stated that GOP front-runner Donald Trump is “taking heat from all sides for his plan to ban Muslims from entering America.”
